Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week
In 2017, a total of $160,000 is available in grants of up to $10,000 for projects that celebrate, profile and share the outcomes of existing or past community and philanthropy partnerships – projects whose main aim is to fundraise or attract new partners are not eligible for support. The projects should bring to life this year’s theme of building stronger communities together.
Philanthropy is not just something that is done by high-net-worth individuals and corporations. The reality is that it takes place in communities across Australia every day, as people contribute their time and talent, as well as their own funds, to make a better community.
Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week is a chance for grassroots community groups and their philanthropic partners to showcase and promote the great work they are already doing in the cities and regions right across Australia. It is also an opportunity to share knowledge and best practice, and to strengthen or develop new relationships and partnerships.
Successful applicants will receive funds in August 2017 and projects will need to be completed within five months, with at least some part of the funded project taking place during Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week in November 2017.
The program is managed by Philanthropy Australia and the grants, which are independently administered by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal, are open to not-for-profit groups operating in urban or rural and regional Australia. CPPW is supported through the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership, which brings together community and business leaders to advise the Australian Government on practical strategies to foster a culture of giving in Australia.
